MAKE. PLAY. READ. LEARN by TTW Contributor Justin Hoenke

  From the moment that I began working in libraries in around 2007, I was not a fan of Summer Reading programs and the themes they were generally packaged around. They were boring, cookie cutter, and out of date. The themes seemed to be 1-2 years behind what was popular […]
